1930s Britain was gripped by recession and social unrest. After witnessing brutal repression of the hunger marches and infiltration by undercover police, Ronald Kidd formed the National Council for Civil Liberties – today known as Liberty – at a meeting at St Martin’s in 1934. He and a small group, which was later to grow to thousands of members, came together to “defend the whole spirit of British freedom”.
This exhibition celebrates 80 years of Liberty holding the powerful to account, showing battles fought and won for freedom, fairness, justice and equality, with some striking parallels between 1934 and the present day.
